NCAA: Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey Given One-Game Suspension

Jul 3 2013, 1:11am CDT | by

Baylor University women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey was suspended for one game and given a reprimand for disparaging comments about the officiating during last season's NCAA tournament.

Baylor University women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey received a one-game suspension and a reprimand for her comments about the officiating during the 2013 NCAA tournament. 

According to ESPN, the suspension will take effect in Baylor's next tournament game. In addition, the NCAA also withheld Baylor's team championship per diem from the regional round. 

Mulkey made some critical comments about the officiating after her team lost to the Louisville Cardinals women's team, 82-81.

"I thought that all three of them, if they go past this round of officiating, it will be sad for the game. I thought the two critical calls at the end of the game were really bad."

The NCAA issued a press release stating it issued a stiffer penalty in light of Mulkey crticizing the NCAA tournament bracket two years ago. 

"The NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Committee noted this is the latest misconduct act by Mulkey during the past several championships and believes a more stringent penalty is appropriate to prevent these actions from continuing. She also received a public reprimand for comments to the media following the 2011 championship. 

"Mulkey's misconduct led the committee to issue her a one-game NCAA postseason championship suspension as well as the withholding of Baylor's team championship per diem during the regional round of play." 

Carolayne Henry, chair of the committe, said the body felt Coach Mulkey's behavior was unacceptable.

"The committee unanimously felt that the behavior of Coach Mulkey was unacceptable and has no place in the women's basketball championship."

Mulkey became coach of Baylor's women's basketball team in 2000, per the team's official site. She guided the Lady Bears to NCAA championships in 2005 and 2012. When the university won the 2005 title, Mulkey became the first individual ever to win a national basketball championship as a player, assistant coach and head coach.
